My second post for the McGill Human Rights Interns blog is about how Canadian criminal law stigmatizes people living with HIV/AIDS by making non-disclosure of their status a criminal offence, without contextualizing their situation. I also discuss “Positive Women: Exposing Injustice,” a documentary film produced by the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network, which premiered two weeks ago.
All posts for the month June, 2012

It’s been a busy couple of weeks – so I thought I’d share a copule of things I’d written outside of this blog.
I’ve been doing an internship at the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network, as a part of McGill Law Faculty’s Human Rights Internship program. It’s been an eye-opening experience in many ways – I recapped my first couple of weeks for the McGill Human Rights Interns blog.

Random drunk person on the subway to his friend: Yo, yo, I came up with, like, the hardest ‘what would you rather’ question. Would you rather: watch your parents have sex every night, or join in once and never watch them?
Friend: EW! Duuuuuuude! I’d just kill myself.
Friend #2: What does ‘every night’ mean? Like for the rest of your life?
Thank you, drunk guy, for planting the most disturbing question in my head.
